City:

Eligibility:

Open call for works in writing that address queer performativity & corporalities. As we approach the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Bar Riots, El Sotano Art Space invites New York based writers, poets and artist to submit work that engages with the concepts of queer revolutions. The purpose of this exhibition is to vocalize and show the different ways in which queer communities and queer individuals enact resistance, revolution and rebellion; from their own corporality, individual and community actions, materialities and performativity. Thinking of Queer Revolutions as something that starts in the viscera, sweats through the skin and filters into the streets.

Artists will be given the opportunity to perform a live reading of their piece on July 12th.

30 Days of Writing: Create a Book in a Month

Share

Category:

30 Days of Writing is a practical online course for writers and artists who'd enjoy the challenge of putting together a book in a month. The course is especially suited to anyone who'd like to take on a short project not necessarily linked to a book project you're working on. It's an opportunity to create that passion project you've been mulling over for years...

The online course is devised so that you can start a project from scratch and complete a first draft by the end of June. The course is a month-long commitment throughout June, and will benefit anyone who'd like the inspiration and support to write daily for 30 days alongside other writers from around the world.

The course includes:

  • 2 x 30-minute one-to-one consultations at the start and end of the course. In the first, we'll pin-point a manageable project for you to work on throughout the month. In the second consultation we'll look at ways of refining your draft and explore possible avenues of publication.
  • Daily prompts and suggestions. There'll be general prompts to work from, as well as prompts specific to your project.
  • Ongoing and personalised feedback throughout the course.
  • Advise about self-publishing, zines, and photobooks. Suggestions about places to submit your work for publication.
  • Two copies of 12 Doable Writing Projects.
  • The workshop is devised to suit writers of all levels who are willing to try out new ways of writing and thinking about writing.  

Dates: 1 June - 1 July 2019

Fee: £260 (£200 early-bird rate before 30 April)  

limited to 15 participants 

About the tutor: Shaun Levin is the author of Snapshots of The Boy, A Year of Two Summers and Seven Sweet Things, amongst other books. He is the creator of Writing Maps and runs The A3 Press, a new independent chapbook press. Shaun has been teaching creative writing for over twenty years and has worked closely with writers at all stages of their journey towards publication.

Collectivism Residency

Share

City:

Haarlem Artspace is seeking 5 individuals to join us for our Spring
project ‘Collectivism’ which involves a four-day residency and
one-day conference bringing people together for an exchange
of ideas on the themes of collectivism, resilience and
collaboration. The one-day conference Resilience through
Collectivism will be the second Derbyshire Creative Heritage
conference and is in partnership with Junction Arts.

Haarlem Artspace provides quality, dedicated studio space for
contemporary artists, writers and other creative businesses
alongside a public programme of cutting-edge exhibitions, talks
and events designed to engage and inspire. The residency invites
five artists, writers, curators or researchers to join us in the space for
four days plus the final conference day. This will be an opportunity
to join our studio holders and associates and guests from Instituto
Procomum in Brazil, our partners on the British Council’s Developing
Inclusive and Creative Economies programme for five days of
dynamic activity. The residency is jointly facilitated and co-curated
by artist Alice Gale-Feeny and artist and Haarlem Artspace
Director, Olivia Punnett.

Our aims are to demystify artistic and collaborative working and
encourage debate, reconsidering rural contemporary arts and the
experiences of resilience through collectivism. Participants will
engage in activities exploring how the collective multidisciplinary
studio experience invigorates an individual’s practice. Work will be
documented using writing, drawing and digital recording and will
be shared on a new digital platform following the residency.
Haarlem Artspace (within Haarlem Mill) is based in Wirksworth, a
market town on the edge of the Peak District National Park that
once had a thriving lead mining and quarrying industry. The town
has an unusually large artistic and creative population, in part due
to the 25-year history of its annual Wirksworth arts festival, which
now attracts more than 4000 visitors each year. There is a distinct
community ethos here, and the town is very much a creative hub
with a strong sense of place.
Activities undertaken on the residency can include anything the
individual would like to work on within the spirit of the themes. This
is an opportunity to share your work with other people and work in
the context of a vibrant shared-studio space. You may equally
have a specific project that you want to carry out over the
week. We would like one of the participants to document the
residency.
